A guitar I designed

Just wanted to see if anyone was interested in guitar design. Here is one I did on my paint program. I plan on posting more up if people are interested.

Re: A guitar I designed

Surprisingly, I like it and thinks it's pretty cool.

All it needs is a little slimming and sleeking out. Though personally I don't think it's that practical to have a horn sticking out all the way to the 7th fret

Cool shape, I do not dig the color, but the shape is nice and refreshingly new. Keep it up!

Re: A guitar I designed

This is closer to what it would look like in a natural wood color for those who don't dig the color. I bookmatched a piece of bastogne I was going to buy using a paint program. It's the rarest walnut that I know of and one day I'll build a guitar out of it.

Re: A guitar I designed

maybe i am getting to old, but that thing is fugly beyond fugly, also not practical. When you sit down the lower horns little brother is going to stab a hole into you and you better never hit anyone with the lower horn, because that person will die instantly. You forgot the pup selector switch

Designs aren't always practical on paper, Of course I wanted to keep as much of the grain as possible when doing these, thats my reason for not having more switches. THanks for the comment though. It made me laugh really hard when you said the person would die instantly cuz i thought the same thing haha
